    Default Radius dressers

    Hi all,

    I have a couple of radius dressers that are surplus to my needs. All prices are plus shipping from chicago 60707.

    - Ralmikes radius tangent dresser. Has some surface rust on the bright parts, but everything is smooth and should clean up well. Appears complete as far as I can tell. $150

    - Boyar-Shultz radius dresser. Good condition. $50

    Feel free to ask questions!

    Lee

    Interested in that one. I have a Sanford benchtop surface grinder and it's pretty small.

    What's the size of the base?
    How far is the center hole for the diamond from the edge of the base facing the diamond?
    How high up is the surface the diamond sits in?

    Just trying to gauge clearances and whether it's too long to sit on the chuck and reach the wheel.

    Naw, you weren't doing it wrong, just a little off on what you thought you were cutting. Underneath that induction hardened skin, you probably do have 1045.

    Dresser showed up today in fine shape.

    One question: what is the rod with the flat piece on it for?

    No idea! It fits in the hole just behind the diamond point. But I couldn't tell what the purpose was...

    Looks to me like it is a height setting fixture. Set gage blocks or whatever under the end of the rod with the plate and turn the plate so the diamond can be brought up to touch it then lock it in position. With nothing under the rod it probably puts the diamond right on center.
